Amy Schumer Shuts Down Offensive Interviewer
oh my god.
Amy Schumer isn't going to take any of your sh*t. Though this is something we already knew, the comedian made sure we wouldn't forget it when she boldly shut down an Australian radio host during an interview for her new movie, Trainwreck.
The interview started off normal enough, as hosts Matt Tilley and Jane Hall engaged Schumer in a conversation about the sadder moments of her comedic film and discussed how she found the balance between sticking to the script and allowing the actors to improv on-set. Then, Tilley decided to refer to Schumer's character as "skanky"—asking Schumer, "Do you have the word ‘skanky’ in America?”—and everything took a turn for the excrutiatingly awkward.
As expected, Schumer didn't take too kindly to the remark, and responded by saying, "We do have that word. What made you think about your mom?" Though Tilley tried to deflect the tension, Schumer wasn't having it, and she unpologetically shut down anything offensive thing the hosts tried to ask for the rest of the video.
Sit back and enjoy six minutes of cringe-worthy, sarcastic, pubic hair-filled joy (yes, that topic comes up, as well). You'll thank us later.
